Glory Be! Pachter Actually Has Something Nice to Say About 3DS

Analyst must have gotten out of bed the right side this morning

Every time Nintendo does or doesn't do anything, well-regarded analyst Michael Pachter almost always has something snide to say about it. The man has forged a career out of shooting down new projects and pouring scorn over potentially exciting games.

It seems, though, that when it comes to the 3DS, he's actually quite impressed:

The 3DS was SO much better than I ever imagined, it has to be the hit of the show. I think that they can sell out the first 10 million at any price below $300, and I think that the experience is well worth a price that high.

Anyone doubting 3DS's potential can put their raised eyebrows away now – Patcher has spoken!
